There was a three-alarm fire at Skywalker Ranch’s Main House yesterday evening, reports the Marin Independent Journal. There were no injuries and “little to no damage,” but Ranch and Marin County firefighters did call in backup from nearby San Rafael – to help check that the fire hadn’t spread to elsewhere in the building.

Michael Kaminski explores the role of Marcia Lucas – who won an Oscar for the editing of A New Hope – in George’s early career over at the Secret History of Star Wars. This is a fascinating read, and Kaminski makes an interesting parallel to the events of Revenge of the Sith towards the end.

There’s a door marked ‘LucasFilm Television’ at Skywalker Ranch, TV Squad claims. Offices! For the planning and billing and other exciting office-based television things! (Which could, maybe, date all the way back to The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles?)
Yes George, we are pathetic. (Announce something, please?)

George Lucas has been named Grand Marshall of next weekend’s Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. He’s also participating in the 31st Annual Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race on Saturday.
Star Wars is getting namechecked as movies in 3-D get press coverage, but remember, far as we know the saga in 3-D is still on hold.
Plans to make major additions to Skywalker Ranch (two screening rooms and a bridge) were approved by Marin County last month.
